Four Lions (2010)

Directed By:
Christopher Morris

Summing It Up:
A bumbling group of British jihadists attempt to plan a terrorist attack. Comedy ensues.

Quick Thoughts: 
I heard a lot of positive buzz about this film, so I was rather curious to check out. Glad to say that it lived up to the hype.

If the concept sounds like somewhat of a touchy subject, that's probably because, for a lot of folks, it is. However, if you can put your political correctness aside for an hour-and-a-half, I think you'll find that the movie itself is quite hilarious. Just think  of it as the a modern day Three Stooges film; only the Stooges are British Muslims bent on waging Holy War.

This movie made it onto a lot of critics' "Best-Of" lists for 2010, and I can understand why. Give it a shot if you have the chance.
